Indian movie star of film on racial profiling detained in U.S. airport
Indian movie star Shahrukh Khan, who just finished a shoot for an upcoming movie about racial profiling called “My Name Is Khan,” was recently detained in a U.S. airport.
After being held for hours, SRK was finally allowed to make a call. He phoned the Indian consulate in the United States which confirmed his identity.
SRK, as he is known to fans, said he was angered and humiliated by the experience.
“I was really hassled perhaps because of my name being Khan. These guys just wouldn’t let me through,” he told reporters.
Of course this sort of thing happens every day in the land of the free. It’s only when it happens to someone famous that any real mention is made.
